Hogzilla was a male wild hog shot and killed by his owner, Chris Griffin, in Alapaha, Georgie. Originally, Griffin claimed to have hunted a giant hog but later revealed Hogzilla was in fact a pet. This revelation caused a public outcry.
Photograph of Hogzilla circulated throughout the United States due to people’s fascination with its length and size. Hogzilla was allegedly 12 feet long and weighed approximately over one ton. Its remains were exhumed in 2005 and studied by Dr. Oz Katz and his father Dr Eliahu Katz. The animal became the subject of a documentary and book. Due to its unbelievable size, Hogzilla was originally considered to be a hoax.
